Circular Quay

A view of Circular Quay ferry terminal from the Overseas Passenger Terminal. Circular Quay railway station sits behind with the elevated Cahill Expressway above it, rising to the city skyline.

  4. Lily Hydrangea, the temperatures at the moment are maximum around 25 to 30 degrees celsius, which I believe is about 77 to 86 farenheit. A bit cooler than a usual summer here. I have a weather widget on the sidebar that you can check every day.

  24. Great photos, that crane in the first one marks the building (10 Phillip Street) in which I worked from 1953 to 1956. I didn't realize then just how lucky I was to work in such a place.

  33. Memories come back with your photos of Circular quay and the Passenger Terminal. How many ships have arrived and departed with migrants. 1974 was the last ship the Gallileo Gallilei arriving with migrants. I guess since then it has changed and was modernised.

  34. I prefer the left pic. Perhaps because of the lines in it? I don't know. Just a matter of taste, I guess...;-) Have a good weekend!
